Just when Manzana presented a few days ago iOS 12 and released in turn iOS 11.4 , the community of users joyfully celebrates another very different news. And it is that the release of a bug detected in the iOS kernel by the computer Project Zero will make possible in a very short time the Jailbreak for iOS 11.3.1 .
After a long season with difficulties to violate the source code of Apple’s software platform, and currently with Jailbreak for versions up to iOS 11.1.2, Coolstar is already preparing to adapt Electra to the new vulnerability published by Ian Beer that will allow the Jailbreak for iOS 11.3.1 .
Jailbreak for iOS 11.3.1 on the way
The community already sensed it. There were previous movements that boded that the Jailbreak for iOS 11.3.1 it would come true from one moment to the next. The origin was none other than the discovery of Ian Beer, member of the team Google Project Zero – Responsible for discovering Zero Day vulnerabilities – as he recorded in a chromium forum .
iOS 11.4 patched kernel memory corruption bugs I reported in two distinct areas: mptcp and vfs. My exploit for the mptcp bug is here: https://t.co/Vj4AX1rNd5 Please read the README. It requires an Apple developer cert.

Now that Apple has already managed to fix the vulnerability with iOS 11.4, Ian Beer is already licensed to publish the means and methodology that will be the trigger to achieve the Jailbreak for iOS 11.3.1.
Electra compatible with iOS 11.3.1
So much so that Coolstar, developer in charge of Electra , the tool that currently manages the Jailbreak in versions until iOS 11.2.1, has already warned that the Jailbreak for iOS 11.3.1 with Electra It’s a matter of little time.
However, before you have to find a solution to the main obstacle found in the hack discovered by Ian Beer. That is none other than to avoid the need for an Apple developer account for the process. However, the lightness with which the same Coolstar has published the upcoming availability of Electra compatible with iOS 11.3.1 suggests that the release of the same will be imminent.
